I’VE BEEN BITTEN BY AN OLD WHITE MAN

Template for Love

Adam ate the apple
But Eve took the lashes
Fascinating that we’re still attached
To this parable
Fixed at the hip to this ridiculous shit
There’s no faith in equality
‘Cos God’s got a monopoly
On all that’s right and all that’s wrong
Who comes first and who comes last
Whose ceiling’s made of glass
And who we choose to screw 

We all know who to blame 
For this societal disease
Tie a weight around my knees
And toss me to the sea
Put a bullet in my brain
Like a zombie bit my hand
Run me over in a van
Before I get a chance to change
Into an old white man

I’ve been bitten
I’ve been bitten
I’ve been bitten
by an old white man


Like a cocoon fuming at the butterfly
The aging generations
Like to crucify millennials
For a narcissistic lot with toxic priorities
We get a lot of grief
Sticking up for minorities 
And all we’ve heard are fighting words
Sneering lips, peering eyes
The revolution will be streamed
While they fumble with their TV screens


We all know who to blame 
For this societal disease
Tie a weight around my knees
And toss me to the sea
Put a bullet in my brain
Like a zombie bit my hand
Run me over in a van
Before I get a chance to change
Into an old white man

I’ve been bitten
I’ve been bitten
I’ve been bitten
by an old white man
